believes that we have to both walk and chew gum at the same time. we have to deal with our own economy and our fiscal situation. that is a given, because that is the source of our strength and our capacity. but we also have to be smart about making the right investments in diplomacy and development to try to solve problems and prevent them. >> i'm joined tonight with senator chris murphy of connecticut, who is a member of the senate foreign relations committee. senator, good to have you with us tonight. moving forward, security obviously is an issue. so getting funding and help from republicans shouldn't be hard after this hearing. that's what i see today. your thoughts on it. >> well, listen, the republicans have had chance after chance to do the right thing here. the irony is just as thick as the walls of the united states congress, when you think that they stripped $300 million out of the secretary's security requests before benghazi. but it gets even worse, ed. after benghazi, the president and the secretary of state said listen, we've got to do better. so they put before congress
& noble, dagen and connell. they will close a third of their stores. it is a tough economy. people are moving to digital. this may bode well for amazon.com. barnes & noble down nearly 2% today. barnes & noble say they will close one third of their stores over the next decade. let's take a look at the broader market. the dow down about ten points. much like the nasdaq composite and the s&p 500. they are all hovering near the unchanged line. the retail, drugged and bank index all have done okay with down arrows. connell: a team of a bipartisan senators have come together with their own plan on immigration reform. dagen: peter barnes is on capitol hill with the very latest. peter: this group of eight editors can't bipartisan group, for democrats, for republicans, trying to get out before the president speech tomorrow in nevada. now, the senator's proposal includes increase and verifiable border security and tracking of legal immigrants making sure that they believe when they are supposed to, mandatory employment verification, green cards for top floor and college students who are gett
of an economy that has been stagnant for about four years. in the meantime the federal government keeps plunging into debt. so if someone brings forward an alternative to at least give us the opportunity to provide effective oversight and to make sure that this money does go to emergency needs and doesn't just fulfill a wish list for what some cities would like to do in the future to prevent against future storms -- not that we shouldn't be debating that, but that doesn't qualify as an emergency need getting money to the people that need it now. these are future decisions. we haven't had time to assess those. we haven't had time to examine those in detail. we haven't used the process that is in place here in the united states senate to go through committees and let the committees work through, is this essential to meeting the emergency needs? or can we set this aside and spend a little more time examining it, looking at it to make sure that this is how we want to go forward? we have a habit here of throwing money at things under an emergency category and then later finding out that, one, it wasn
of it, how much the circumstances the economy was unable to brand obama. >> the clearest way to look at this is to look at 2010. 2010 was a set -- was a resounding rejection of what obama had done in the first two years. it was a resounding rejection of the intrusiveness expansion of the pyramid. it was a referendum on this kind of hyper liberalism and there was a referendum about the size and reach of government. and it was a pure ideological election. because there were no personalities involved. you weren't voting for president. you want boating up and down on a figure. you were voting on issues and the dominant issue was obama and as a scare, the stimulus committee increase in spending, the expansion of the government. or to put it in a more abstract and grand was the difference between federal and state which was tilting more toward state. when the question is put that way, the country shows itself to be center-right country. had republicans been able to duplicate those conditions, that framework in 2012, they would have won. but it is not the same election. 2010 is almost purel
of characteristics that will help build the american economy and strengthen american families. third, we create an effective employment verification system that will prevent identity theft and end the future hires of unauthorized workers and lastly establish an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our workforce needs while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes l
that health care is now a huge part of our economy. accounting for almost 30% of gdp. that is to point trillion dollars. -- that is two trillion dollars. i am sure the policy students play a drinking game while watching programs like this on c-span based on how many times the word "unsustainable" is repeated. those same 2011 spending figures released earlier this month revealed that for the third year in a row aggregate spending grew by just 3.9%, the smallest increment in decades. to paraphrase ross perot's running mate in a debate many years ago, "why are we here?" at least one response to that question is we do not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joini
for that economy that we've been working for, to vote for immigration reform, to vote for common sense gun reforms. you know, i think that we can affect elections but we legally can't be involved in them. >> some critics have raised red flags as the group's designation over a 501 c-4. with me is michael isikoff. the designation of a 501 c-4, what is the benefit to do that? >> this is the new route that advocacy groups use, can accept unlimited corporate donations and not disclose where they come from and use them for all sorts of political ads. now, they've followed -- the obama people have now followed the karl rove model and they're openly pitching corporate donations. the opening pitch was sponsored by a group called business forward. a lot of big companies, dow chemical, duke energy -- >> a lot of tech companies. >> comcast are part owner, nbc was part of it. they say they're going to disclose and that is a step ahead of where karl rove is but what kind of disclosure is the question. when i pressed katie hogan, the spokeswoman for the group, she said that's all being worked out. will we get re
to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st century america. his focus has to be on the economy. on the need to reduce unemployment. and frankly, i hope he can, through his own example, restore a sense of civility in the country. >> every president learns a lot. is scarred by the office. also made more wise by the office. what is the one thing you hope president obama has learned over the last four years? >> i hope he's learned that you know, no one part of the government, really, gets it all done. and so, he's got to do a better job of reaching out to members of congress, across both -- across the aisle, to the republicans. and the republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. why aren't republican leaders shouting out about all thi
% of the entire budget of government at a time that the world is getting smaller, that our economy depends on its relationship with every other country in the world, that we face a more global market than any time in our history, so not just in my briefings a s at the state department, but in my conversations with business leaders, in my trips to crisis areas, to war zones, to refugee camps, and in some of the poorest countries on earth, i have been reminded of the importance of the work our state department does to protect and advance america's interests and do the job of diplomacy in a dangerous world and particularly, i think, there is more that can be done to advance our economic capacity and interests. in this debate and in every endeavor, i pledge to work very closely with this committee, mr. chairman, mr. ranking member, not just because it would be my responsibility but because i will not be able to do this job effectively, nor will our country get what it needs to out of these initiatives without your involvement and your ideas going forward. so thank you, mr. chairman and members of the
and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all around the world. the weakened cash in on that. would not have to wait on it. -- we can cash in on that. we do not have to wait on it. we need to keep doing what we're doing. it is going to mean a tremendous amount of jobs. we have seen that all through the midwest. north dakota is certainly a huge example of it. they say now there is to% and unemployed -- 2% unemployed there. we cannot find those folks.

the importance of characteristics that will help build the american economy and strengthen american families. third, we create an effective employment verification system that will prevent identity theft and end the hiring of future unauthorized workers. and lastly, we establish an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our nation's workforce needs, while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before, trumpeting similar proposals. but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act, but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill
as we think about the economy of the united states coming and as you point out, the other developing countries around the world. one of the efforts of this administration has been to promote business advocacy abroad for domestic businesses at home. i led a trade mission to india about a year and a half ago with a number of businesses from new and church, and they talked about how important it was to have that support from the state officials in india as they were looking to try to establish those business relationships. can you talk about how you might continue that and continue that this is something you would be focused on an unwilling to continue to support? >> well, as i said in my opening, i think foreign policy is increasingly economic policy, and we have an undersecretary for economic affairs, economics, energy etc.. i think that the state department historical use to have a foreign commercial service back in 1979. it slipped away. i think the secretary had the time -- i think that is something we ought to be doing in a very significant way. obviously working with the treasury
and a stable economy as a means to security and stability. i think the concerns are many. the concerns are around africa com in 2008 at a time when africa surpassed the middle east in its supply of oil to the united states and the concern of the u.s. of africa and oil and a vital resource is the true rationale for africacom, as well as countering china in that theater where china is increasing its influence. the concern was heightened before africacom was heightened. concern has grown over time. is there any effort to evaluate africacom? i understand your stepping down as a new commander steps in. there has been a congressional hearing on benghazi, but clearly there is a bigger issue at stake and that is u.s. foreign-policy with regards to africa. thank you. >> thank you. it will not surprise you that i disagree with most of what you said, which is ok here k. we live in a country where you can do that. it is true that the state department has the authority for security assistance matters. some of that 8-9,000,000,000 dollars that is spent in africa does in fact go to security assistanc
to deport them, not to mention the effect it would have on our economy. the majority of them have been in our country for over ten years. but the point is that they would have to -- our plan, they would have a legal status here. but then they would have to go through a long process, get in line behind everyone who is a green cardholder, pay tax, go through a background check, in order to be eligible for a path to citizenship. and so i hope that some my colleagues in the house will look at the provisions that we have and, by the way, they would have to pay back taxes, and they would have to pay for their path to citizenship. i do not see a scenario where it would cost money. what costs money now is when people are in this country illegally, show up in the emergency room, with illness, and that bill is paid for by the taxpayers. >> i guess the argument, the other side makes, lamar smith, among others, you tried this in thereagan administration. they say it only encouraged more illegal immigrants to try to come to the united states. >> well, i think that's a good point. i was one of those
was just circumstances, the economy wasn't bad enough to fire obama and the republican party, its brand was still being dragged down with the association through the financial crisis in iraq and sundry other leftovers of the bush years? >> i think the clearest way to look at this is to look at 2010. 2010 was a resounding rejection of what obama had done in the first two years. it was a resounding rejection of the inintrusiveness expansion of the government. it essentially was a referendum on this kind of hyper liberalism and a referendum on the question of the size, the scope, the reach of government, and it was kind of a pure ideological election, because there were no personalities involved. you weren't voting for a president, you weren't voting up and down on a figure, you were voting on issues. and the don't instant -- dominant issue was obama, was the increase in spending, was essentially the expansion of government. or to put it a more abstract and grand way, the relationship between citizen and state which obviously was tilting towards state. so -- and there when the question is
% of the entire budget of the government. at a time when the world is getting smaller, our economy depends on its relationship with every other country in the world's comment we face a more global markets at any time in our history. not just in my briefings at the state department, but in my conversations with business leaders and in my trips to crisis areas, to war zones, refugee camps, and in some of the poorest countries on earth, i've been reminded of the importance of the work our state department does to protect and advance america's interests and do the job of diplomacy and a dangerous world. i think there is more that can be done to advance our economic capacity and interest. in this debate and in every endeavor, i pledge to work closely with this committee. not just because it will be my responsibility, but because i will not be able to do this job effectively without your involvement and your ideas going forward. thank you, mr. chairman and members of the committee. i know there is a lot of ground to cover. >> [inaudible] [indiscernible] >> when i first came to washington and testified,
of the american economy by that. but also very clearly having a pathway to earned legalization is an essential element, and i think that we are largely moving in that direction as an agreement. >> what do you want? senator mccain said it's helpful that president obama is out on the road. what do you want to hear from him? how committed is he to getting this done? he also wants gun control. >> right. well, i was at the white house on friday with the congressional hispanic caucus leadership, and the president made it very clear in that discussion that this was a top legislative priority for him in this session of the congress and that he expects to work with all of us in an effort to achieve the goal, and he's fully committed to it, and i think that's why this week he starts the clock by the speech he's going to make out in las vegas. >> and that pathway to citizenship, that has to be in there? >> absolutely. latino voters in -- first of all, americans support it in poll after poll. secondly, latino voters expect it. thirdly, democrats want it, and, fourth, republicans need it. >> shouldn't the
, immigration reform and gun control. you know, everything but deficit, debt, spending and the america's economy. jobs and the economy was passed by rather quickly. we're in an economic recovery. that was about it. so, yeah, i think congressman ryan called it right. the president's agenda at least from the state of the union address was overwhelmingly liberal and not connected at all to deficit, debt, spending and america's economy and jobs. this is a legitimate disagreement between the two parties and legitimate disagreement between his president and the republican opponents on what the priorities ought to be but it is pretty clear what the president's priorities were. jon: this president racked up a lot of debt in first four years in office and got reelected. maybe he is assuming that the american people are fine with going the way it has been going? >> well i think, he talked about cutting the deficit during the campaign, promised that he would cap $2.50 in spending cuts for every dollar of revenue increase. elections, second elections, reelections for presidents are liberating experiences. m
and india and we could do significant harm to the u.s. economy i think by putting additional rules and regulations with very little impact on the global climate. in this tight budget environment with so many competing american priorities, i would ask you to give considerable thought into limiting significantly resources that would not help us as an economy, not help us as a country and not help us globally in perhaps the efforts you might be pursuing. i don't know if you have specific thoughts. >> i do. i have a lot of specific thoughts on it more than we have time now. and i'm not going to abuse that privilege. but i will say this to you, the solution to climate change is energy policy. and the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the downsides that you are expressing concern about, and i will spend a lot of time trying to persuade you and other colleagues of this. you want to do business and do it well in america, we got to get into the energy race. other countries are in it. i can tell you, massachusetts, fastest growing sector of our economy is clean energy and ene

. republicans support the bill and say it will help the state economy, and also send a message to the federal government, but democrats worry it could be unconstitutional and result in a lawsuit, like it has in other states, with similar laws. michigan's gop governor rick snyder told them they should focus on the economy and mental health issues instead. joining me from lansing, michigan, republican senator mick jones, welcome. >> good morning. >> good morning and thank you for being here. no federal gun laws have even been passed so pardon the pun, aren't you kind of jumping the gun? >> not really. you know, there's much talk about blocking all semiautomatic guns and michigan has a rich hunting heritage, we hunt deer with semiautomatic rifles, we hunt ducks, rabbits and turkeys with semiautomatic shotguns and we believe -- >> ar-15 s though? come on. >> ar-15 hunt things like coyotes. >> but they're not normally used. >> you know, many people use them to defend their selves, their homes and you know as a former sheriff, as a police officer for 31 years, i can tell you that guns are not evil
